Objective: To evaluate the perceptions of nursing students about the use of clinical simulation for teaching and learning in the prevention, evaluation and treatment of pressure injury. Method: A quasi-experimental, quantitative, descriptive and cross-sectional study that will be developed at the clinical simulation center of a Brazilian Federal Public University, located in the interior of São Paulo State. A workshop will be offered to students of an undergraduate Nursing course who are enrolled in grades 5-9. In step 1 the development and validation of the simulated clinical scenarios will take place, the planning of the scenarios will be based on Bloom's Taxonomy and will be constructed according to reference and after validated by experts that will be included according to Fehring's adapted reference. the snowball technique was used. In this validation phase, the Delphi Technique will be used. In case of descriptive contributions, the content analysis and the Content Validation Index will be calculated to assess the judges' agreement on the representativeness of each item. In step 2 there will be a workshop with simulated scenarios on prevention, evaluation and treatment in Pressure Injury, using clinical simulation and moulage. A pretest will be applied for characterization and assessment of knowledge with Pressure Ulcer Knowledge Test. After, will be held a lecture-dialogue and simulated clinical scenarios. At the end of the workshop students will be given the post-knowledge test and validated Self-confidence Scale and the Satisfied Clinical Experiences Satisfaction Scale. We will try to summarize and organize the data obtained through statistical analysis. (AU)
